June the 13th, 2019 – Mate Rimac’s story is inspirational to say the least, and is far, far beyond the Croatian average when it comes to creating your own company and seeing it flourish beyond your wildest dreams in a relatively short period of time.
Rimac, an otherwise unassuming man from Livno, Bosnia and Herzegovina, is no less than a genius dressed in everyday clothing. Not only is he the founder of Croatia’s highly respected Rimac Automobili, the producer of the world’s beloved supercars, but he knows the ins and outs of each and every detailed and intricate process involved in their creation, from start to finish.
Mate Rimac is, without a shred of a doubt, the protagonist of Croatia’s most successful entrepreneurial story. Having attracted the attention and direct investment from some absolute giants within the car world and beyond, including the likes of Porsche.
Recently, Mate Rimac and hia facility near Zagreb, where the supercars are made, were visited by British YouTuber Shmee150, who was astonished by not only Mate Rimac’s knowledge of all of the processes involved, but with the fact that all of this is taking place in no less than Croatia, a country infamous for its red tape and failed investment stories.
Following the visit from the YouTuber, who Mate Rimac guided around the factory himself, speaking in perfect English, the Croatian entrepreneur decided to embark on his own YouTube series covering life and work within Rimac Automobili in Sveta Nedjelja. So far, he has uploaded three videos in the ”Discover Rimac Today” series. The first video can be viewed here, and the second here.
In his new video, Mate Rimac takes us behind the scenes of the science behind the hypercar. Watch it here:
